Step up. Strengthen. Flourish.

Fuel the fire within!


Skills Active is conducting its operations remotely. During the covid-19 pandemic, our team will be at home, getting on with our mahi, and continuing to support our industries. As we focus our love and care on our whānau and communities right now, we are also sending our love and care out to our industries. If you have any questions, please get in touch with your usual contact person, or give us a call on 0508 4 SKILLS.  For more information click here.

We are the industry training organisation for sport, exercise, recreation and performing arts. We create qualifications and help workplaces to get staff trained up. Through this work, our industries can step up, strengthen their people and flourish as individuals and businesses.

Mauri oho, mauri tū, mauri ora.

Step up. Strengthen. Flourish.
